      I have extremely oily skin, and I will be honest, it doesn't eliminate all of my oil, but I can say that I do not get as oily throughout the day anymore.

                  A good primer for the price, I like the smooth silicone feeling of it. It makes my skin feel smooth, fresh, and ready for makeup. It also helps even out bumps, blemishes, etc.

                              This product contains 1.5% Salicylic Acid, so if you're dry in some areas, we'd recommend applying a lightweight moisturizer underneath this product to further help balance your skin.

                              This product is a milky translucent color that applies and dries invisibly. It is suitable for use for all skin tones. It is not color correcting, but it provides a beautiful matte finish.

                              For redness correcting, we recommend ULTA Flawless Prime (Item #: 2220412), which features a green tint to neutralize redness and even skin tone:
